The Town of Carefree’s 2nd year of pumpkin enchantment was a tremendous success!
Visitors strolled the 4 acre exhibit in the Carefree Desert Gardens every day and discovered whimsical pumpkin characters keeping time with the Carefree Sundial. We encouraged people to return as the exhibits changed daily with new carved pumpkins. Everyone enjoyed “Ray’s 10 Best” Pickled Sculpted Pumpkins in their Saguaro Cactus displays that resembled real botanical specimens.
The weekdays were exciting, but the weekends invited the scarecrows and the pumpkin activities to reach their peak and included LIVE pumpkin carving featuring world renowned artist Ray Villafane! The Enchanted Pumpkin Garden was open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. at the Carefree Desert Gardens and Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion.
